John Humphrey is out for the season with a torn achilles, according to Herm Edwards— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) March 22, 2018
Humphrey sustained the injury at practice on Tuesday in an 11-v-11 rep. He was helped off of the field and a boot was put on his foot on the trainer’s table shortly after.
The speedy receiver is no stager to injuries. In just his second game in the maroon and gold a season ago against San Diego State, Humphrey injured his left knee and was forced to miss the Devils’ next four games.
Despite that, the redshirt junior transfer from Oklahoma caught 13 passes for 177 yards and one touchdown.
The injury comes just a week after he told media how great he was feeling, and playing, without worrying about an injury.
“I feel actually 100 percent,” A joyous Humphrey said last Tuesday. “The knee isn’t messing with me any more. I’m back to being John John.”
It’s a tough break for Humphrey who, in his one full game before any injuries arose, caught seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown against New Mexico State.
